Britney Spears and Demi Lovato Confirmed as X Factor Judges
Britney’s Back! And considering the tough couple of years Demi Lovato has had, you could say the same thing about her. The two singers have been officially announced as US X Factor judges. Brit and Demi joined existing judges Simon Cowell and music mogul LA Reid at the Fox network's Upfronts event in New York on 14 May for the big announcement.
Brit tweeted a pic of the foursome with the caption, "#britneyxfactor #SimonBritneyDemiLA". Simon, a huge Britney fan, was thrilled to finally share the news after weeks of speculation about the new judges. He tweeted, "Can't believe it's finally happened. Very exciting!"
At the Upfronts event, he told TV reporters and bloggers, "Well, we delivered. Rumours are one thing, delivering is something else. This has taken a year to get where we've got to today and I am thrilled to be able to confirm, as you can see, the return of L.A. Reid, the addition of Demi Lovato and the superstar Britney Spears."
Britney told the crowd she was thrilled about her new appointment, adding, "I am so excited about this whole experience. It's gonna be so much fun and so different from anything I've ever done and I'm ready to find the true star." And her new sidekick, Demi, said she's "totally stoked" to be a part of the show. Not bad for two former Disney stars.
The singers replace ousted judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul and the second season of X Factor kicks off later this year. We can’t wait to see if Demi and Britney are positive influences on the contestants, or not…
